From the looks of things, it seems like the Honor 20 Pro may get a nerfed version of the P30 Pro camera setup.
Huawei sub-brand Honor is only a day away from the launch of the much-anticipated Honor 20 Pro flagship handset. And, while a lot of the specs of the Honor 20 Pro have already been leaked, the Chinese smartphone maker loves the camera set up on the newest addition to the Honor family.
Before getting into that big ‘camera surprise’, let’s take a look at everything Honor confirmed about its latest flagship handset.
The Honor 20 Pro is powered by the Kirin 980 AI chipset that uses the 7nm manufacturing technology. This offers a considerable bump in performance from the last generation Kirin 970 as well as a significant increase in power efficiency, Honor claims up to a 58 percent increase. The phone is also set to feature an almost bezel-less, notch-free display with the front camera tucked away behind a punch-hole.
